Institute of the Americas

Robert Boyer is economist and associate researcher at the Institute of the Americas since January 2012 and member of its scientific committee since January 2016. His main research fields are “Régulation” theory, an analysis of the transformations of capitalisms, Asian and Latin American capitalisms, European and other regional integrations, Financial crises, History of economic theories, Innovation and growth analysis, Institutional and historical macroeconomics, Labor markets and wage labor nexus and Variety of capitalisms and international comparisons. In October 2020 he published Les capitalisms à l’épreuve de la pandémie. In this essay, the author provides an understanding of the processes set in motion in 2020 and sheds light on the field of possibilities. The dislocation of international relations, the break-up of the euro zone, the destabilization of the social state and the rise of populism are not unlikely. However, a major shift towards a new model built on the complementarity between education, training, health and culture, which would meet citizens’ demand for solidarity and the requirements of the ecological transition, is not excluded either.
